Defeated & Frustrated: Climate Activists Turn to Terror, Go Berserk

The global warming movement as we have known it is dead. It was done in by a combination of bad science and bad politics. Two weeks ago, the foundation (hockey stick) graph of UN Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)'s theory to Global Warming was proved a fraud by a new peer review study. Now an external inquiry constituted jointly by the UN and IPCC to look into the working of the IPCC concluded that the IPCC made claims with high confidence levels when in reality they had little or no evidence for it. 

So what happens to the core faithful of the movement? They apparently are still to come to terms to the death of their movement.  Rudderless, this small rag tag army is increasing taking to violence and fascist ideology. 
The first indication that this the path they will take was signaled by Gene Hasmi, Director Communications, Greenpeace India, early this April. He exhorted the climate activist movement to revolt "We must break the law to make the laws we need." Hasmi further threatened climate skeptics with violence "We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work. And we be many, but you be few.” James Lovelock, ideologue of the movement confirms the fascist underlining of the movement: “It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while, in order to save humanity.”

The last two months we have seen evidence of this escalating trend of fascist lawbreaking and violence. In late July this year, Greenpeace activists temporarily shut down dozens of BP gas stations across London to protest the company's handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and to draw attention to environmental problems stemming from the world's reliance on petroleum. Last week , they broke into the safety zone surrounding Cairn Energy’s drilling rig Stena Don in Greenland by forcing their entry.

How dangerous the Greenpeace model of protest on the rank and file of the environment movement is illustrated by the hostage crisis in Discovery Channel in the US a few days ago. James Lee, an Asian American, entered the lobby of the sprawling building waving a handgun with a package and metallic canisters strapped to his body and took hostages. He is reported to have yelled "Saving the Planet means saving what's left of the non-human wildlife by decreasing the Human population. That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies!"

The popular climate skeptic blog, WUWT has  just broke the news that the wing of US Homeland Security, START Terrorism Center - University of Maryland, in a new report concludes that the deadly hostage-taking incident at the Discovery Communications headquarters in suburban Washington, D.C. meets the criteria of a terrorist act! START maintains a Global Terrorism Database (GTD). Who knows? A membership with Greenpeace would put you in this list! Read more at WUWT.

Rub-off effect from Pacific sets up Bay churn

Monsoon dynamics are now being influenced by the atmospheric energy derived from the South China Sea, the North-west and Western Pacific.
These contiguous ocean basins to the east of Bay of Bengal are witnessing belated action with a train of tropical storms getting generated in the process.

Tropical storm “Mindulle” may have washed ashore on the Vietnamese coast last week, but at least three storms are concurrently raging in these seas.
Of them, “Lionrock” and “Namtheun” have been following a westerly track along the lines of “Mindulle”, which is expected to favourably influence the Indian monsoon.

But Typhoon “Kompasu” has chosen to look the other way heading in the opposite direction (north/north-east) – towards the Korean peninsula and further east.
The “tele-connection” from the east should explain the ongoing activity in the Bay of Bengal, but falling short to ignite activity where it mattered most – the Head Bay.
But the moisture supply and wind pattern have been enough to sustain the rainfall, thanks to the surcharged conditions ensured by the monsoon-friendly La Nina in the East Equatorial Pacific.
Meanwhile, half a world away, the North Atlantic has also woken up to some activity with the Intense Hurricane “Earl” too taking a north to north-east direction to skirt the oil installations in the Gulf of Mexico and barrel into the Caribbean Islands.

International models are suggesting the possibility of a wave of rainfall emerging from the Andhra Pradesh coast and heading west-north-west to cover East Maharashtra, Central, West-central and Northwest Madhya Pradesh and East Gujarat over the next few days.
This will happen as a fresh low-pressure area forms over West-central and adjoining Northwest Bay of Bengal by the weekend. Chances are this could be followed by another in the next week.

Parts of Northwest India could be heading for another wet session by the weekend and into the next as monsoon easterlies from the Bay interact with a westerly trough (western disturbance) entering from across the border.
In this context, the behaviour of Bay of Bengal and cyclogenesis (formation of weather systems) would be watched with interest.
An India Meteorological Department (IMD) update for the 24 hours ending Wednesday morning said widespread rainfall was reported from Konkan, Goa, Saurashtra, Kutch and Coastal Karnataka.
It was fairly widespread over Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
The seasonal monsoon trough, an upper air circulation in the lower levels over Northwest Madhya Pradesh and East Rajasthan and an upper air cyclonic circulation sitting over Gujarat have been the main systems driving the rains.
Satellite imagery on Wednesday showed the presence of convective (rain-bearing) clouds over parts of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, West Uttar Pradesh, Central and Southeast Bay of Bengal, North Andaman Sea and Northeast Arabian Sea.
A rain alert issued by the IMD has warned of isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall over Konkan, Goa and South Gujarat on Thursday and over Andaman and Nicobar Islands during the next two days.
Forecast until Saturday spoke about the possibility of fairly widespread rain or thundershowers over Uttarkhand, West Uttar Pradesh, East Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Coastal Karnataka, Kerala and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Scattered rain or thundershowers has been forecast over Himachal Pradesh, Bihar and East Uttar Pradesh during the next 24 hours and increase thereafter.
Scattered rain or thundershowers would occur over Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Vidarbha during the next two days and increase thereafter, the IMD said.
